Topics: Business      Education

The pathway to change in Myanmar has not been a simple one, with riots, religion and reformist ideals clashing openly and often since the process began back in 2011. Yet despite the many bumps in the road, real progress is being made, with the University of Melbourne one of many external organisations helping build capacity in the country formerly known as Burma. Long-time opposition politician and peace activist Aung San Suu Kyi has frequently described education as one of the keys to the...

Topics: Financial      Banking

British companies will be drafted in by the Burmese government to help kick-start its financial services sector. Last year, the majority of sanctions were lifted against Burma (now officially called Myanmar) allowing it to trade freely with the rest of the world while opening its economy up to foreign investment. This saw Western companies clamour to enter Burma, which has a population of 59 million and was a military dictatorship between 1962 and 2011. It was once regarded as one of...

With sanctions against Myanmar lifted, U.S. President Barack Obama is launching a new American charm offensive in that country to vie against the People's Republic of China as chief economic benefactor.

Myanmar, known for hundreds of years as Burma, is a country very rich in oil and natural gas, which...

Along much of the new 793-kilometre natural gas pipeline linking western China to the Bay of Bengal lie dozens of new schools and clinics. The facilities, built with more than US$20 million in Chinese development aid, are evidence of Beijing's new approach to Myanmar. Facing a Myanmese public increasing sceptical of its huge demands for natural resources, Beijing went out of its way to present itself as a friendly neighbour before gas started flowing through the pipeline last week.

Myanmar’s tourism is on a roller coaster, accelerating in response to two years of government reforms according to Hotels and Tourism Minister, Htay Aung. Talking to local media, earlier this week, he said Myanmar’s tourism sector was opening up to foreign investment and competition, but the challenge was to manage and develop infrastructure to maintain momentum.

BEIJING (AP) — China has switched on a pipeline bringing natural gas from Burma, a state company said Monday, in a project that has raised concerns in Burma’s nascent civil society about whether its giant neighbor’s resource grabs will benefit local people. The 793-kilometer (493-mile) pipeline connects the Bay of Bengal with southwest China’s Yunnan province and is expected to transfer 12 billion cubic meters of natural gas to China annually, according to a news release on the website of...
